                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: We are a family of 7 from Raleigh. We bought this house in 2005 because we LOVE the lake - and Lake Gaston is the most beautiful in NC. We work pretty busy full time roles, and use our lake escape as the place to relax, unwind, and enjoy the finer things in life - time with family and friends.

                      Why the Owner Chose Littleton:
                      We have been going to Lake Gaston for forty years on family vacations. Once you see the lake you will fall in love with it too. It's a very relaxing place with plenty to do! Owning Stag's Leap is a dream come true for our family and we've enjoyed every moment we have spent here. We look forward to you enjoying it too!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      This is a great place to make life-long family memories. So much more to do than the typical vacation spot with all the water sports. Our cottage is stocked with lots of games. Small children will love the gently sloping sandy beach into the clean water right next to the private dock. Our favorite past time is to sit on the covered porch and watch the fun on the water. It's a great place to watch thunderstorms at the end of a play-filled day! We've recently added internet service as an amenity. Now you can keep in touch even while you're relaxing!
